Water Softeners

A water softener installed in your home is an answer for cleaner water and is also a solution for homes that have hard water. The issue of hard water can impact the overall quality of water. Hard water contains traces of minerals that includes higher than average levels of magnesium and chlorine. Hard water leads to dry skin as it can actually change someone’s pH balance. Hard water can also leave people with an itchy scalp and can impact hair.

warning Signs of hard water 

It is not tremendously difficult to identify signs of hard water within a home. You just have to know where to look. Signs of hard water leave an imprint because of the minerals and acid it contains. Here is a look at some signs that your home may be using hard water:

  • Stains on chrome and porcelain
  • Spots and cloudy film on dishware
  • Green coloration around fixtures
  • Erosion on copper pipes
  • Excessive accumulation of soap scum

How water softeners work for you

The presence of hard water is noticeable when taking a shower or after washing your dishes. The process of removing magnesium and calcium from the water change the water to what is called soft water. This only requires a one-time installation and then it the water softener is all yours to reap the following benefits:

  • Removal of minerals and contaminants
  • Low maintenance
  • Ease of use once installed
  • Improves taste of water

Protection of Pipes

Hard water cannot only have an impact on the water used for drinking and bathing, but it can also impact your piping. Water continues to travel through your pipes and when it has traces of minerals, it can lead to a buildup of rust or corrosion in the pipes. Over time, that can wear the pipes down and eventually cause a leak. In some cases, it could even lead to a pipe to burst. Adding a water softener will eliminate these problems and extend the life of the pipes inside a home.
